Opel Ampera-e price revealed in Norway

Opel Ampera-e price in Norway

With a starting price of 299.000 NOK (33.260 €), the Opel Ampera-e if not production constrained, can easily become the best selling car in Norway. Other electric car models might struggle to sell without discounts.

 

With first deliveries of the Chevrolet Bolt EV in the USA happening just now, Europeans have to wait a little more to get the Ampera-e. Norwegians should be the first customers to get it in June 2017.

 

Let’s see how the Opel Ampera-e compares to other two popular electric car models.

Hyundai IONIQ Electric

Considering that around summer, the Renault Zoe usually gets generous discounts, some people might go for it.

 

As a side note, I do hope that Opel considers introducing new wheel trims for the Ampera-e, because its standard 17-inch wheel trims aren’t very aerodynamic. They allow too much air enter into the wheels and this creates turbulent drag.

Electric cars rely more on regenerative braking than mechanical, therefore they hardly require air to cool down the mechanical brakes.

Wheel trims like the one we see above, still allow some air in – aren’t fully enclosed – but could add 5-10 % more range to the Opel Ampera-e, depending on the speed.

 

Thanks Stefan Ko for the heads up.

 

What do you think? Is the Opel Ampera-e’s price what you expected?

  1. The price is good… but whatever price it would come, it does not mater, because vaporware can have the price you want… 🙁

  2. Does anyone know if there are come cash backs from government? This may have an impact pn the price. If not, it gives a good indication about the price in other countries.

      1. And, more importantly, don’t pay import fees that usually amount to far more than the (25%) VAT.

      2. En la UE son del 10%.

  3. I got 4000 € additional discount on a Renault ZE40 order in Germany. So if you get no discount on the Ampera the price difference would be 11000 €.

    1. Not only that’s a great discount, but also the battery included option in every country – excluding France – will significantly boost Renault Zoe’s sales in 2017.

      Looking forward to see the sale figures.

  4. In belgium you can currently buy a newnissan leaf including 24kw battery for 21.000 euro (5k cash back government + 5k off viaspecial nissan deal). Agreed this is not as good battery as the e-ampera but that at that price the nissan should imho be able to get some cars sold next year too awaiting their new model.

  5. Norway will maximum get 10% of the cars that could be sold. Does GM/Opel loose money with this price? I see no reason that GM, with wast production experience, is not able to manufacture more cars. The specs alone, will sell many cars. GM knows this too, so there must be a reason why they don’t manufacture more. If they make money, there is no reason why they will not scale up Production.
